Magyar Telekom’s profit down
Magyar Telekom’s (MT) profits and revenue dropped in the second quarter, the company’s consolidated IFRS published today shows.
MT’s net profit fell by 5.1% to HUF 11.6 bln y.o.y. due to higher taxes and bigger financial loss, the report says.

The company’s revenue fell by 3.3% to HUF 151.8 bln. MT says turnover from all businesses - mobile, fixed line and non-core energy services - dropped, while the direct cost of sales rose by 9.5% to HUF 50.2 bln.
Though the company’s EBITDA was practically flat at HUF 49.6 bln, income taxes grew by 23.5% to HUF 4.8 bln, causing an increase of financial losses by 18.6% to HUF 7.8 bln.
Magyar Telekom had total assets of approximately HUF 1 trillion at the end of June, down by 2.0% from the end of last year. Net assets increased by 3.5% to HUF 507 bln. The net debt ratio of the company reached 42.5% at the end of the period.
